No? Darn. Maybe someday.
Imagine your icon drunk at a bar, singing off-key as his/her friends try to catch him/her whilst jumping from table to table in drunken euphoria.
In Poland as well, and I think in more countries. Maybe in Europe in general? Idk.
The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.
The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.
Cherry blossoms are beautiful.
Cherry blossoms try to kill me every year.
Two true statements.

best thing about sweden is that it’s illegal to make commercials aimed at children, bless
Are you serious?? That is AWESOME!!
So, I was watching a documentary about global obesity.
Now, I’m watching another documentary that’s mainly focusing on marketing to children. And I am furious.
These food companies are calling their products healthy.
yeah okay but imagine this:
Bus seats in Finland - for the unsocial people, like me.
Rule number one in Finnish public transport culture: Don’t sit next to anyone. Unless the seats are like this.
In every other cases fill the spots from window seats. Then standing up seats. If the bus gets crowded sit next to someone but sit as far as possible from the other person and turn your head to look to the completely different direction. Don’t say a word.
And if you’re the one sitting next to window pray all the gods that the other person leaves before you, because otherwise you’d have to speak to him/her. Usually it’s something like “Umm..ileavenow”. Remember, no sorries or smiles. Just say it as low and fast as possible without making any eye contact.
legit advise for people visiting finland. that “ileavenow” is “mä jään täs” in finnish. it’s okay if you don’t pronounce it perfectly right because the only reason someone would talk to strangers in public transport is to ask them to move, so they will get the hint.
BUT! usually just things like putting your phone away and rustling your bag and looking like you are about to leave will do the trick. no need for words.
….and this is how you wait for a bus in finland:
Reblogging because of that picture. So true. And familiar.
This is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen…what the actual fuck. It almost seems like a joke but I feel like it’s actually serious????
The same goes for Sweden!
Definitely the same in Sweden.
